The Many Lessons Of My Favourite Banana Muffin Recipe

The Many Lessons Of My Favourite Banana Muffin Recipe

My oldest has always been keen to get up first thing in the morning and do his own thing for a while. Since he could toddle his way out of the bed he spends early mornings reading and playing. Often the sound of LEGO block searching  gets me up.

Lately though, he's been into foraging first thing and the sound of the cookie jar lid at 6:45am often wakes me up.

My way to combat this behaviour, rather than get myself out of bed, is to just make cookies and muffins so chock full of goodness they pass for "pre-breakfast" and this mom can sleep on.

Our Best Unschooling Day This Week - Pysanky Party!

Our Best Unschooling Day This Week - Pysanky Party!

It was very important for me to write Pysanky this year for so many reasons but mostly because I am free and safe and I can. Creating is very healing, calming and it's usually pretty fun. I've found it's one of the best things I can do for myself.

And while the days leading up to it were so full, Easter unfolded with such ease this year that allowed for all kinds of creativity, including making Ukrainian Easter eggs.

Creativity Over Cleaning

Creativity Over Cleaning

I realize it's become increasingly hard to give myself time. I run this business from our home. I love cooking and baking for our family but it's a part time job. Homemade marshmallows and soup and bagels are sooo good. And I get so much joy from doing it.

I crave more joy in my life.

And then there's the laundry, sweeping, and snack making that seem to work together to fill every other spare moment there is. Oh yeah, and I'm unschooling the hooligans.

Unschooling requires energy and attention and the willingess to go with the flow. And there's a whole lot of mental energy required to deschool myself.

Reason #546 Of Why I Love Homeschooling - Cinnamon Buns

Reason #546 Of Why I Love Homeschooling - Cinnamon Buns

The hooligans and I had such fun baking these. We actually do most of our home learning when we bake.They loved making the Tanzhong in the first step and it opened up all kinds of conversations about baking, Asia, language, chemisty, stories from when I was a pastry chef. And we smelled the cinnamon and meausred and mixed and rolled the dough. And while it rested to let the yeast do it's magic we rested too. And talked a little bit about yeast and sourdough and looked for the dental floss.

Bananas and Boundaries

I can't always count on the hooligans for help baking anymore. Baking has been "our thing" since they could stand beside me on a chair in the kitchen. But they are very busy individuals, as you can imagine, so all I can do is create the opportunity. And if they care to join me then I'm there to help.
